Why I am starting a blog

There are a few reasons that I have decided on this endeavor.  Some I know and some I am sure I will discover in the future.  I will try and talk about a few of them here.

I have recently had to resign from my job and I now have a shitload of time on my hands.  Realizing that I can’t surf the web all day to look for a job I am realizing I am going to have to try some new things in my life.  Growing up as a child I used to be very artistic and creative.  Those days have been long gone for some time now.  I have been thinking for years that I need to get back in touch with my creative side and writing is one way that I think I can do this.  I am better than most, with my use of grammar and I have a large vocabulary as well as a vivid imagination.  I hope to nurture some of these creative aspects of myself through this blog.

I have a thirst for knowledge.  I always am eager to learn.  I am open minded and I thought that starting a blog might be a great way to expand my knowledge and learn some new things from new people about the things that I enjoy and love to discuss.  I also want to express my opinions on  matters of importance to me.  I do feel that I have something to share with the world and I am hoping also that the world has something to share with me.

I also want to establish a presence on the web. Understanding that the web is a big part of our future I felt it important to get started on this.  Only 10 years ago did I have my first exposure to the internet.  I have learned so much in that time.  I have refined my thoughts and ideas and have discovered new things that I never knew existed (most of which I am sure to touch on writing this blog).  I would like to give any readers of my blog a chance to voice there opinions and build on their comments to ignite a useful discussion.

Keeping in touch with friends and family is another aspect of this blog I may eventually find useful as well.  While I no longer live in my hometown and have moved out of state, this could be a good way to communicate with those I care about and miss talking to in lieu of using the telephone (which I really do not care for all that much).

I guess that’s about it.  This is my first blog post and it seems appropriate.  Thanks for reading.
